linksys e3000 pulling my hair out

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
ok im at my whits end here. last week i got a netgear wndr3400 and after many hours with tech support could not get it to run on my xps 1730 at 300mbps. i got so fed up i returned it and got a linksys e3000 {which supports dd-wrt} .

although i do like the e3000 web interface much better, with way more function control, i still cannot get the dang wireless to link up at 300mbps. also i cannot get it to do it with my desktop that is running a d-link dir556 atheros adapter running the atheros drivers.

i have it set identical to my old router {d-link dir 615} that was picking up my dir556 at 300 mbps. wpa2 (AES) only, auto channel, 20/40 mixed channel width, "N" network mode only . someone please tell me what i might be doing wrong. so far it seams that i am just throwing money at something that cannot be done. wondering why my 7 yr old router reports better numbers than the brand new one?

will dd-wrt help with achieving 300 mbps link with the e3000 router or is there just a little setting that i am missing?

This should be in the networking forum, so If you still need help post it there or get a mod to move it for you.
